Jr. Sewing 101

This has been a day filled with all sorts of fun things; to begin with hubby and I took a bike ride, approx. 3 miles at a very good speed. Then after we got home, we went looking for a car for him. We test drove both a Jetta and a Passat; the Jetta reminded me of being in college-it was pretty basic. WE both preferred the Passat, but hubby is determined to have a black sedan. Initially, he wasn't looking for a new car, but the prices now seem so close between the 2013 and 2014 that he might just end up with one. I am going to do my typical online research and see what cars, in the same price range, meet or exceed the Passat. I keep saying that it will probably be our last new car, so he might as well get one he really likes. Here are the sewing pictures I promised of our granddaughters.  Making a tube for the headband.

I just have to say that uploading the photos today was much more complicated; not the process, but blogger kept changing the sequence.  We had such a fun time; I will say turning the tube inside out was challenging for the younger girls. The buttons definitely add a bit of zing to the headbands.
I just went on a short walk with Hunter and our neighbors, so now I'm going to get this post finished so I can move onto other things that I need to accomplish today.
I finished the quilt, but hubby always does the photography and he is at work-I will post it tomorrow or Sunday. 
Have a splendid weekend and enjoy being outdoors while you can. 


  1. They are so cute. Love seeing little ones sewing. You are giving them a lifelong gift. C started a 8 and. Still sews today at 24.

  2. What little cuties. I am so glad that you take the time to do things like sewing with them. It makes forever memories. Looking forward to seeing the quilt. xo Diana

  3. Hello Noreen... your little granddaughters are just adorable!... and how fun you are teaching them how to sew... I bet they love coming to your house!... Happy Autumn weekend to you, xoxo... Julie Marie

  4. Such wonderful memories or a great skill to teach those girls!

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. How wonderful that you are teaching the girls to sew. I wish my own mother had taught me.

  6. What cute granddaughters!!
    Yes bloggy is always doing something weird!

  7. What precious little faces. And what a wonderful gift you are giving them, beyond learning to sew. I suspect they are best friends and love being with their Nana. In this tough world, how great is it that they have a loving place, besides their own home where they can enjoy growing up.

  8. Funnily enough Wonder Boy after doing his research found it cheaper to lease a new car over here than buy. So each year he gets a new car. Miss The Old Beast but a little run around is all we need for the city. Love the hairbands. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. The headbands turned out so cute! Well done, girls!
